children's advocate AND career builder

Dr. William Klish had a successful, decades-long career as a physician and nationally recognized researcher and expert on childhood obesity. Now he and his wife, Marian Klish, have donated $100,000 to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation in support of a center at UW-Eau Claire that guides students along the path to successful careers in the health sciences. The William J. and Marian A. Klish Health Careers Center, dedicated in fall 2013, will make possible for today's students what Klish was able to accomplish after earning his Blugold degrees in chemistry and biology back in 1963. Dr. William Klish has made his mark both as a children's health advocate AND health career champion for UW-Eau Claire's health sciences students.
